HIGHLIGHTS

During the month of September, Emergency Livelihoods partners continued to respond to the needs of Syrian refugees across KR-I.

PARNTER ACHIEVEMENTS:

1 - Partners continued to support Syrian refugees and vulnerable host community members with livelihoods interventions, reaching a total of 4,057 individuals. The number of individuals who benefited from temporary employment and vocational training have increased.

2 - Vocational trainings for young refugees and the host community continued to prove fruitful both as an opportunity to equip people with adequate skills to join the labour market, and as a protection measure to engage young people under 18 in educational activities leading to improved labour competencies and a stronger hope for the future.

COORDINATION AND REPORTING:

The Syrian refugee Working Group continued to meet on a monthly basis, exchanging experience, and contributing to setting priorities for the Syrian response.
